DRIVEN: Mitsubishi Attrage – 21 km/l claims put to test

Mitsubishi Attrage review-2

It’s a very competitive market out there these days, especially in the B-segment, where the cars are bigger than ever, with prices that have never been lower.

The sub-RM100k buyer has never had it this good in terms of choice. Outside the default “Big 3” (that’s the Nissan Almera, Toyota Vios and Honda City), Naza provides two well-kitted hatchbacks – one Korean (Kia Rio), one French (Peugeot 208). The facelifted Ford Fiesta, available in both hatch and sedan, is another popular urban choice, while the Honda Jazz Hybrid is a green and practical option. Even VW is now in the game with the CKD Polo Sedan and Polo Hatch.

Faced with such stiff competition, a newcomer will need a strong unique selling point for it to rise to the surface and stay afloat. The Mitsubishi Attrage you see here has one pretty convincing USP in the season of inflation – outstanding fuel efficiency that will save you money at the pumps. 21 km/l, they say.

Challenge accepted. We put Mitsubishi’s New European Driving Cycle claims to the test with a journey from KL to Ipoh, plus another few hundred kilometres of the daily grind to see what else the Attrage has to offer.

It is understandable if you approach manufacturer fuel economy figures with scepticism. We generally take them with a pinch of salt too, especially when it’s usually near impossible to replicate the claims in real world driving. Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia begs to differ. The company is confident that 21 km/l isn’t just theoretical, but practical as well, so they organised a drive to Ipoh for us to challenge the Attrage.

The eco challenge started at MMM’s headquarters in Subang, where we got on the NKVE heading north. It was then straight all the way, before exiting at Tambun and joining the lunch traffic in Ipoh’s Old Town.

Two up, air con speed and temp set at the middle points, highway cruising speed ranging between 70 to 100 km/h (no coasting in neutral), no driver change (stop and start = less efficient), an allocated time of three hours (which we used to the max) and a feathery right foot combined for 24.19 km/l. Did we gain from driving a manual? The winners of the challenge did 24.7 km/l in a CVT, so no.

Mitsubishi Attrage review-7

Yes, we bettered the combined score of 21 km/l, but it has to be qualified that our route was mostly highway with just a small portion of city traffic, and it was a conscious effort to be light-footed, cruising below normal highway speeds to maintain a consistently low rpm.

A constant 110 km/h cruise with occasional overtaking wouldn’t have delivered such spectacular results, but it was a test to prove what’s possible with some willpower. And we’re not talking about extreme hypermiling.

After achieving what’s possible, we set out to do something more probable. Another stint with the Attrage CVT over a couple of working days (normal routine, mixed driving with jams, including one trip to Sepang and back) returned 365 km for my 20 litres of RON95, which is equivalent to 18.25 km/l – better than expected, and more surprising than the aforementioned best efforts.

Mitsubishi Attrage review-36

To put that in context, 18 km/l is better than a mixed cycle in my own hybrid car. Yes, I’ve been gentle with the Attrage’s throttle, but that’s what driving an economical car does to this writer – an extra 0.1 km/l is a “Yes!”, achieving the next 1 km/l is a victory. That’s what driving an eco car is all about, isn’t it?

Luckily, the media drive route from Ipoh to Penang gave us a chance to get out of eco mode and get our horns out. The back roads off the PLUS highway between Kuala Kangsar and Bukit Merah served up a good mix of high speed sweepers, narrow hill twisties and lumpy surfaces, a good cocktail of a road to test the Attrage dynamically.

The Attrage is softly sprung, and the long travel suspension gave it a somehwat loping gait over the dips and crests that peppered our B-road section. There’s no hiding the body roll, but the overall performance was more composed from behind the wheel than what it would have looked like to a spectator. The Attrage is an honest little car in terms of handling, and it’s easy to drive it hard.

Mitsubishi Attrage review-16

Grip was surprisingly good. We were expecting squeals of protest from the tyres in a few tight corners, only to find dogged determination to hold line. Upon closer inspection, were were surprised to find sporty Bridgestone Potenzas (S001, 185/55 R15) on this eco car!

The steering channels a decent amount of feel to your palms, and the turning circle is superb, but the trade off is that it’s a little slow. Not the sharpest helm in class, too. Ride comfort is good, but the Attrage would have chalked up a more solid impression had low speed bumps been dealt with less noisily.

It was pedal to metal (literally) for the entire stretch, so it was good that we were in the manual. When power is limited, it’s good to have control and timing in your hands, and that was the case here. The M/T’s clutch is light and the whole gearshift process is rather vague, but this trait is typical of stick shifters in budget cars. No excuse for the cheap and ‘designless’ gear knob, though.

With two on board, we would say that the 80 PS/106 Nm 1.2 litre MIVEC engine has adequate reserves for a fast drive, although one must be prepared to rev out every ounce from those three pots, which in itself is a fun and rewarding activity in a modestly powered car. High speed stability isn’t the best in class, though.

Both points in the above paragraph are connected to the Mitsu’s lack of weight – at just 875 kg for the M/T and 905 kg for the CVT, the base Attrage is lighter than a Lotus Elise! It’s no rocket science – with less weight to haul, one can get away with a small engine with a matching appetite for fuel.

The CVT wouldn’t have been fun on that particular stretch, but in every other situation, on any other day, its smooth and easy character shines through. A progressive right foot is the seamless gearbox’s best ally; likewise, sudden and big stabs at the throttle will elicit a noisy protest. The smooth and comfy overall experience led to thoughts of a “junior Nissan Sylphy”, which we mean as a compliment.

Driving the Attrage over a few days meant that we noticed a few quirks that didn’t surface in the cross-state dash. It could have been an isolated case, but the test car’s idle wasn’t perfectly smooth – throbbing can be felt through the brake pedal (subsides when gear lever is pushed to N), which is slightly at odds with the drivetrain’s general manners.

Nitpicking further, radio signal from the 2-DIN Kenwood head-unit was poor, and while rear legroom is very good – with plenty of room under the front seats for feet to tuck under – rear headroom isn’t as generous. It’s obvious that the Attrage isn’t a wide car, and three abreast is a tight affair at the back. It isn’t cramped by any means, but some rivals boast more space.

The Attrage, in our tester’s fully-loaded SE spec, is very well equipped. There’s the abovementioned touch screen head unit with reverse camera, entry is keyless with a push start button, and the AC is digital auto, but it still manages to feel somewhat basic inside. I suspect that it’s due to the very conventional design and layout of the dashboard.

Mitsubishi Attrage review-35

On the plus side, the generous amount of strorage spaces, including a tray above the glove box, is much appreciated. I also like wing mirrors that auto-fold when the car is locked.

Taking a few steps back for the bigger picture, the Mitsubishi Attrage is a unique entry in this segment, a true eco car that delivers great FC without costing hybrid money. We’re looking at a minimalist approach to making an eco car here, and it’s refreshing. The economy claims are real and achievable, and for those who care more for km/l than km/h, the Attrage is an attractive proposition.

      Here, i would like to compare with my suzuki swift 1.4. I bought the basic version around 65k otr. this mitsubishi cost more than that, my suzuki FC is about 17 km/l on mix driving and 14-15km/l when in town. if highway fc, it could reach up to 24km/l if i keep it steady around 90km/h. Still, if i go up to 170km/l, the average figure is still around 14-15km/l. I know the attrage fc is slightly better but the thing is i have to spend more just to get the slight savings.If the attrage is set to be cheaper, i would consider one.

        The claimed FC of 21km/lit is nothing to shout about. The latest 3rd generation MINI which is 1.5cc with similar 3 cylinder engine is giving a better FC of 62miles/gal (100km/4 lit or 25km/lit). Hence it not a very good investment to buy Attrage.

          Have you forgotten the ~200k price tag of a MINI? You are comparing 2 different cars intended for 2 different markets.

          Compare it with its most likely rivals (The Vios, the City, the Almera, etc.) and then you can sound more logical. Buying a car is never really an investment, anyway.

PaulTan team got 24.7 km/l for Attrage… so, just to get that 0.3 km/l savings, car buyers will have to spend a lot more ( let me help you with the pricing…the MINI you were referring to cost more than 178K)…Attrage and Mirage cost only 60K – 77K (1/3 of the price)…maybe you need a calculator and a Maths tutor…

          I bet to differ. You are comparing a continental car with a Japanese car. Both cars are on different price range. Yes, your latest 3rd Generation Mini is better performance in term of Fuel Consumption. Have you ever thought the price discrepancy among these two cars, maintenance, and part replacement? You have to fork out RM220K or more for your said Mini 3rd generation if compared with a Attrage which is approximately RM76K or lesser. The extra of your money you can keep for maintenance for the next 10 years or buy for other cars.

          I think Attrage is far more better of investment than your continental car.

      But for fuel thirsty car like Proton 10KM/Liter, MITI should punish it with extra 25% car tax to 100% (from 75%)

      20KM/Liter Fuel efficient car = 10% car excise duty

      10KM/Liter Fuel thirsty car = 100% car excise duty

    Having my eye on this car for some time now but the missus isn’t too thrilled with the 1.2L engine. Her friend’s insight can barely do steep uphill roads.
    Nevertheless I’m pretty convinced that it’ll make a good daily car for Malaysia; part highway cruise part slow traffic jams.

    The only other car I’m considering is the new city since it’s CVT as well and weigh it against the anticipated price tag of up to 93k. 15k higher than the attrage.

    Wish attrage had better colours to choose from tho…

        Honda insight is really weak::

        take a look:
        Honda Insight:
        The 1.3 litre IMA system – with 88 PS and 121 Nm from the engine and 14 PS and 78 Nm from the motor.

        Toyota Prius C:
        the VVT-i mill makes 73 PS and 111 Nm of torque.
        The electric motor in question makes 61 PS and 169 Nm of torque.

        169Nm of torque in the Prius C.
        starting from 0km/h. this torque can never be found in any petrol car below 1.6.
        immediate oomph feeling on Prius C.

        Honda insight.
        starting 0km/h only get 78Nm.
        and up to 40km/h still get 78Nm, where engine is off.

        of course no power. u need to step pedal hard on Insight to activate the petrol engine.

        Honda Hybrid –> Underpowered.
        less fuel efficiency too.

        • different types of hybrid on Jun 23, 2014 at 11:44 pm

          Some correction to do.
          The Toyota and the Honda have all over different type of hybrid.
          The toyota hybrid only have their engine activated at speed above 40km/h, but the honda on the other hand their engine starts the moment you put your throttle on. not at speed above 40km/h.
          The reason? Coz honda still believed that the engine have to be the main power producer at all speed while the motor is just there to assist.
          Therefore based on ur statement, it should mean that the insight basically get back their 121NM of torque with their 78NM of torque from 0km/h. The only difference is the amount of assist you get from the motor differs based on your throttle input while the toyota is purely full electric motor which means that Honda had never been underpowered.
          However it is true that the toyota hybrid have better fuel consumption due to the fact that honda will activate their engine the moment you step on the accelerator.
          More engine runtime -> less fuel efficiency. not underpowered.

Throwing lots of equipment at it doesn’t even begin to justify its price, and for less I’d have the Picanto, which is so much more grown-up and refined.

      Isn’t Up a small city car? This one is Polo size. Fair enough if you say you want an A segment car but then if that’s the case, the Attrage or Mirage isn’t for you anyway.

      • The difference between A and B segments are blurring these days anyway. The Up and the Polo is not that different in terms of space anyway, so is the Mirage compared to a Viva. A small car can be fun to drive, well equipped and fuel efficient as well.

        Comparing it by price, the Fiesta is fun but too expensive. The Swift has cheaper built quality but is so grown up in the way it drives. Anyone who says that the Swift is overpriced should drive it, feels like driving a bigger car. And its smaller than most A segments in terms of legroom and boot space.

        For the Picanto comparisons, 6 airbags and ESC is so much more desirable compared to an extra 3km/l. You never know when you need safety until you really need it.

  • Below comment was posted earlier by me on Mirage page – Feb22.
    http://paultan.org/2014/01/26/driven-mitsubishi-mirage-1-2-gs-tested-malaysia/#comments

    Finally I upgraded my horse 2009 Vios J to 2013 Attrage. Below are my personal views after driving for 500km and still 1st tank of fuel:

    1. Paintwork is not fully cover the body piece inside the engine compartment especially the engine hood. Paintwork generally look great from the outside view but you got “2 tones” for the hidden spot.

    2. Many colleagues of mine have bad perception for a 3 cylinder engine. During idling, the 3A92 is really “shaky” but thanks to the engine mounting to dampen the vibration. Now the question is how much is the cost for engine mounting and also it’s life span as for the excessive movement.

    3. After a week of driving, my best fuel consumption that I achieved was 15-17km/l for town driving. Tried a short stint of 20km highway drive, the computer trip showed average of 20.3km/l. I set the air cond to 26° Celsius, engine rpm below 3000. Most important, your foot must be gentle on the throttle pedal.

    4. This is my 1st time to drive a CVT transmission car. The so called rubber band effect does exist in this car but only experience when the speed from 20-40km/h. However, if you press the throttle pedal right e.g after paying the toll and accelerate and you won’t feel the effect. From my experiment, keep the rpm at least 2500 and I don’t get the effect. The pickup is adequate for single driver without passengers. Since my engine is still in break in period but I have a feel that the car can be very fast and strong after rpm hit 3000 and above.

    5. I can’t comment the handling of the car now as I need time to adapt after switching from Vios J. Initial, the body roll is beyond my expectation. I change the seat position for a few times as the design have limited lumbar support. I lowered the tire pressure as I got the car with very high tire pressure from the sales centre. Then I changed the height of the steering wheel so that I can have optimum comfortable seat position and I feel confident to make sharp turns. No matter how, the body roll is bad if compare to my old Vios and agreed by my passengers. This car needs driver skills to drive in aggressive mode. Surprisingly, I feel Attrage is more comfortable to drive than my old Vios after the third day. I did missed my old car after a day and two :)

    6. The car undercarriage sound proof is poorer than my old Vios. I just don’t like the sound of the suspension when the car hit certain potholes. It will sound like a “gong”. Speed bumps, uneven road, etc are fine for me. Overall cabin insulation is good when I switch on the Kenwood HU to elimate the CVT, engine and outside noise.

    7. Attrage seems more premium than my old Vios in term of digital stuffs. The HU, keyless operation system, digital aircond, EBD brake system, auto-fold side mirrors (my colleagues wow for this and pray that it won’t spoil easily) and the most significant are leather wrapped steering wheel and gear shift :) It lacks of coin compartment, arm rest console (ask SA to order for me) and luggage boot tray (ask SA to order too).

    I just hope the car is problem free and less maintainance cost for years. I’ll give two thumbs up if the resale value is high in future.

    • – The front seats very thin paddings and a bit cramped rear seats for tall people (head nearly hit the roof).

      – Door handle flat type (old fashion). If pull type and chrome it’ll look premium.

      – Engine is timing chain, surely less maintenance costs.

      – No audio control button at steering for all models. But for Thailand Attrage it is available.

      – Digital aircon is a big plus point, the first for any cheap B segment, not even Vios have it.

      – Dashboard plastic not too rough, comparable as Myvi. Still smooth to touch. Door panels just decent quality. But overall acceptable quality lah.

      – Price big problem. Either Mitsubishi Malaysia being forced to put RM10K more expensive than Thailand unit or trying to rake quick bucks. Only MITI knows the real mystery…

      Something these reviews usually don’t mention is the slightly quirky nature of the CVT. It carries with it a subtransmission consisting of a single high and a single low gear in addition to the CVT pulleys. The gears are sth like the H and L gears on some bicycles. At certain speeds when the low gear switches to the high gear or the high gear switches to low gear in a kickdown, it can feel like a conventional autobox in operation. It also sometimes allows for a speed burst for when you need it in a kickdown-like effect. ;)
      Really depends on how you play with the throttle for smoothness or aggression.

      P.S. I’m an Attrage GS owner since the end of December 2013. Love the car for its inherent qualities, except for the body roll, which is very apparent. Going to install some Ultra Racing bars, in due time….

      I doubt your comment. Here is my view. Before I start, bear in mind that you said just 500 km with 1st tank. Ok, lets,

      1. Paintwork is not fully cover the body piece inside the engine compartment especially the engine hood. Except continental car, this is normal. I dont know if you try to tell others your ‘seluar kecik’ is red color and try to highlight that rather than tell others that you pants is black.

      2. Now the question is how much is the cost for engine mounting and also it’s life span as for the excessive movement. Are you try to say that is car is high maintenance compare vios? Bro, viva semua 3 cyl. Ok je.

      3. After a week of driving, my best fuel consumption that I achieved was 15-17km/l for town driving. Tried a short stint of 20km highway drive, the computer trip showed average of 20.3km/l. We all know that computer trip is just estimation. Need to fuel up for accurate result. You dont eh this procedure? Pakcik google can help you.

      4. The pickup is adequate for single driver without passengers. You say so long dear, pusing sana sini… why not said, pickup vios is better than this 1.2 liter car?

      5. the body roll is bad if compare to my old Vios and agreed by my passengers. Aha…. this is point. Good one

      6. The car undercarriage sound proof is poorer than my old Vios. Same as above

      7. (my colleagues wow for this and pray that it won’t spoil easily). Quality question right? In other words, vios is better right?

      I just hope the car is problem free and less maintainance cost for years. I’ll give two thumbs up if the resale value is high in future. Ya ya…. Vios is more reliable and high resale value. Hello, put the hell resale value. If car is reliable and low maintenance, why just use it for 9 years only?

      After 4 years, your insurance premium goes crazy. Plus, incoming car now more cheaper and insurance getting higher.

        For your number 3, let me vouch for the accuracy of the trip computer. I’ve had 5 refuels for this car and if I consistently see 16.1km/l for most of the days between refuels, the actual calculated mileage per tank is very very close to the most commonly seen mileage on the trip computer.

        Quality remains to be seen, since the car is relatively new. However, Toyota’s quality track record is quite good so Mitsubishi will be hard-pressed to top them, as will many other autocompanies.

    “It could have been an isolated case, but the test car’s idle wasn’t perfectly smooth – throbbing can be felt through the brake pedal (subsides when gear lever is pushed to N), which is slightly at odds with the drivetrain’s general manners.”

    Hi Danny,

    I test drove the Attrage, and similarly experienced the same characteristic with the CVT version. It isn’t a very strong vibration, but noticeable. I guess owners would just get used to it.
    Agree with your review and some of the points mentioned by other owner’s comments. I guess you just have manage your expectations for what this car is, and isn’t. Sound insulation is understandably less, probably to save weight.
    End of the day, didn’t buy the Attrage as well as the Almera (was shopping around), for one personal reason – rear seats do not fold down, which I do need from time to time, so ended up buying the City. Told my wife, if we didn’t need this feature, Attrage would have been my choice!

      • CVT transmission ratio is not fixed. It was 140km/h that morning for 4000-5000 rpm then when I ease my throttle it dropped to 3000. During descend the hill, the car can hit 110km/h at 2000 rpm but it’s depend on the road terrain. That’s why CVT is more fuel efficient than manual transmission if you know how to maintain the car momentum by correct engine speed rpm.

      Obviously you don’t read the complete article and jump straight to shooting blindly. Next time, try not to embarass yourself.

      “Yes, we bettered the combined score of 21 km/l, but it has to be qualified that our route was mostly highway with just a small portion of city traffic, and it was a conscious effort to be light-footed, cruising below normal highway speeds to maintain a consistently low rpm.

      A constant 110 km/h cruise with occasional overtaking wouldn’t have delivered such spectacular results, but it was a test to prove what’s possible with some willpower. And we’re not talking about extreme hypermiling.

      After achieving what’s possible, we set out to do something more probable. Another stint with the Attrage CVT over a couple of working days (normal routine, mixed driving with jams, including one trip to Sepang and back) returned 365 km for my 20 litres of RON95, which is equivalent to 18.25 km/l – better than expected, and more surprising than the aforementioned best efforts.”

    Attrage compression ratio is 11.0:1
    Mirage 10.5:1

    The compression ratio of an internal-combustion engine or external combustion engine is a value that represents the ratio of the volume of its combustion chamber from its largest capacity to its smallest capacity. It is a fundamental specification for many common combustion engines.

    In a piston engine, it is the ratio between the volume of the cylinder and combustion chamber when the piston is at the bottom of its stroke, and the volume of the combustion chamber when the piston is at the top of its stroke.[1]

    For example, a cylinder and its combustion chamber with the piston at the bottom of its stroke may contain 1000 cc of air (900 cc in the cylinder plus 100 cc in the combustion chamber). When the piston has moved up to the top of its stroke inside the cylinder, and the remaining volume inside the head or combustion chamber has been reduced to 100 cc, then the compression ratio would be proportionally described as 1000:100, or with fractional reduction, a 10:1 compression ratio.

    A high compression ratio is desirable because it allows an engine to extract more mechanical energy from a given mass of air-fuel mixture due to its higher thermal efficiency. This occurs because internal combustion engines are heat engines, and higher efficiency is created because higher compression ratios permit the same combustion temperature to be reached with less fuel, while giving a longer expansion cycle, creating more mechanical power output and lowering the exhaust temperature. It may be more helpful to think of it as an “expansion ratio”, since more expansion reduces the temperature of the exhaust gases, and therefore the energy wasted to the atmosphere. Diesel engines actually have a higher peak combustion temperature than petrol engines, but the greater expansion means they reject less heat in their cooler exhaust.

    Higher compression ratios will however make gasoline engines subject to engine knocking if lower octane-rated fuel is used, also known as detonation. This can reduce efficiency or damage the engine if knock sensors are not present to retard the timing. However, knock sensors have been a requirement of the OBD-II specification used in 1996 model year vehicles and newer.

    On the other hand, Diesel engines operate on the principle of compression ignition, so that a fuel which resists autoignition will cause late ignition, which will also lead to engine knock.

    • they said the higher compression ratio- the higher octane-rated fuel we should use, is it true ? thank you very much

  • Frankly say, my 2.0 turbo diesel will get 21km/ltr for that kind of speed in highway route.

  • But 18km/ltr on combine traffic is pretty impressive though.. Well it small engine.

  • So far I got an Almera and a Vios car drivers challenged me to speed along LDP and Federal highway. I guess my Attrage front chrome look fierce for them :)
    Weird stuff I found out lately. If you check your smartphone Map apps, the speed different is lesser compare with my old ride, 2009 Vios J. For example, when I maintained my speed 110km/h for a minute, Map apps in Mitsubishi car shown 107km/h and in Vios car shown 103km/h.
    In short, it seems like traveling 110km/h in my old ride but in my Attrage 110km/h seems more faster and quieter with 2000-2500rpm.

    • Again.. This morning after the morning jam I was being “chased” by a Proton Inspira along LDP highway till the toll booth. Sweat.

      Yes, ask your government to build more bullet trains route surrounding your area.

      If not mistaken for the malaysian version I think it is 3 stars, other countries have 5 stars with the ESP. you can check with the SA

  • Sorry, can I ask you a question ?

    What is different between vehicles for Euro 5 regulation and the rest ?

    I live in VietNam, I don’t know what is the reason they said that : for Euro 5 regulation and Azerbaijan vehicle use unleaded 95 Ron ?

    I think Mitsubishi made the same engine for all Mitsubishi attrage CVT so why we ( Vietnamese) should use unleaded 90 Ron instead of 95 Ron? ( they said with 90 Ron the engine’s performance reduced ) like European use?

    What is different between Euro 5 regulation and Vietnam ?
    what are different between unleaded 95 and 90 Ron?

    I have just bought one attrage CVT 2015,… please reply me, thank you very much.

  • After 3 years and 70K km mileage, my Attrage still running like very new but the second hand value between Rm30-Rm40K. It’s more valueable to buy as used car now.
